As summer is -- dare I say -- nearing its end, we want to see pictures of your eco-vacations and green travel adventures. Did you fly NatureAir, the world's first carbon neutral airline, to Costa Rica and stay at green-hotel Finca Rosa Blanca? Explore the flora and fauna of Venezuala at the De La Costa Eco-Lodge -- located in Henri Pittier National Park? Did you observe nature at the Napo Wildlife Center in Amazonia, like Lloyd? Or, did you keep it local -- like your diet-- with a staycation and pitch a tent in your backyard? Prove it! Click through for details on how to submit and upload photos of your eco-travel adventures and be sure to tell us how you kept your environmental-impact low on the totem pole.
